Associate Professor of Philosophy Katheryn Doran recently presented at the Philosophy of Film Without Theory conference at the University of York, U.K. Her paper was selected to the conference from a deep and competitive international pool.

In “With Friends Like These,” Doran focused on the relationship between philosophy and movies, and whether the traditional philosophical text is the standard by which the philosophical status of anything, including movies, should be judged.

Doran discussed how philosophy can be screened without focusing on argument, or making appeals to links between its ideas and philosophical texts, by giving an account of Christopher Nolan’s 2002 thriller Insomnia on its own philosophical terms.
